Big news! This bill requires Native American history to be taught K-12 in North Dakota schools 🎉📚

State Rep. Ruth Buffalo of Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara Nation:
“When I heard the cheers and after the votes were cast, I was just overcome with emotion because this is so important, for not only Native Americans but non-Native Americans... [it's] really going to help work towards building community ... a better understanding of our neighbors and ... ultimately it's going to bring healing."

In 2014, 15.5% of Battle Creek’s children were ready for kindergarten. By 2020, that rate has more than doubled to 39.2%.

Improvement on that scale doesn’t happen by accident. In Battle Creek, it’s the result of a decade-long collaborative focus involving organizations across the early childhood education and care spectrum –– all committed to improving outcomes for children in the city.

By finding and sharing data, ECE advocates in Battle Creek could identify and address gaps in early learning.

11th grade students **do not** need to take MCAS this spring AND they **will not** need the test to graduate in 2022.
((They **will** have an option to take MCAS in the fall for the purposes of the John and Abigail Adams scholarship.))
No student should have to take a stressful exam moments after they’ve returned to in-person learning.
The focus must be on recouping learning loss, mental health, and rebuilding social relationships.

Georgetown Law Initiative on Gender Justice & Opportunity

As our world has shifted online during the COVID pandemic, girls of color have been uniquely and disproportionately affected. We have sought to identify opportunities for girls of color to strengthen their connection to school and engage in empowering, healing programs.

With the generous support of Grantmakers 4 Girls of Color, the Initiative collaborated with Restorative Empowerment for Youth (REY), a community-based organization in Houston, Texas to create and assess a pilot online restorative practices training program for girls of color. The training program was designed for girls of color to learn how to lead restorative practices in their schools. Check out the case study below!
